Where's the outrage about the Kochs?

Posted By on Tue, Oct 18, 2011 at 6:16 AM

There's a growing awareness of the misplaced outrage by those who've been tools of the Koch-financed Americans for Prosperity, organization, which serves as a Tea Party cheerleading arm for the Republican Party. While they advance the Koch billionaires' cause of decreased environmental regulation and lower taxes, communities where the Kochs profit, such as Crossett, pay the price.

A group is at work exposing the Kochs' industries, including Georgia-Pacific. The Kochs feed Arkansas politicians, of course, including Crossett's nominal congressman, U.S. Rep. Mike Ross.

Legal action may be in the offing over allegations of pollution in Crossett, the Brave New Foundation says. Americans for Prosperity perhaps needs to take its informational tour to Crossett.
